District comprehensive plan


The Frazier School District Comprehensive Plan was approved by the Pennsylvania Department of Education for implementation during the July 1, 2019 to June 20, 2022 cycle.

Mission Statement

The mission of the Frazier School District is to inspire and empower our students so that they can become lifelong learners who are respectful, responsible and productive citizens in a global society.


Vision Statement

The Frazier School District is committed to providing students with an academically rigorous curriculum while developing deeper learning competencies in all students. Frazier sets high expectations in support of students’ efforts to strive to achieve academically and in the acquisition of the skills necessary for life success.


Shared Values

The Frazier School District Community believes that all students can learn and that the students should share in the responsibility for their own education. We also believe that our schools should model loyalty and integrity in a respectful, inclusive, and dynamic environment. All students are to be valued and serve a safe and encouraging place to grow and learn. We believe that the district has a responsibility to seek out and cultivate strong partnerships among students, faculty/staff, families, and community in an effort to strengthen the educational process and broaden well-rounded educational opportunities in collaboration with post-secondary institutions, businesses, and industry to create and sustain programs to prepare students to excel beyond high school. We believe that the physical facility of the school should reflect a strong sense of pride while providing the resources needed to carry out our mission. The district will operate in a fiscally responsible manner in order to continually maintain and improve both the physical plant and the educational programs. Fiscal decisions are effectively balanced so that the educational needs of the students are met.
